    name cheap gives it to you for the first year free too, but i would pay godaddy more for one before giving 1 and 1 anymore money, they are not worth it

    when someone looks up the info on the site, instead of seeing your personal info they will see domains by proxy info instead

    GoDaddy seems to like their "transfer cheap with a free year of registration" deal, so you could register someplace with free private reg for a year, then xfer it at the end to GoDaddy (if you still want it). I did that with a few domains.
